The crowd at the Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa apparently thought Oprah was about to introduce Jay Z or Beyoncé.
Instead, much to their chagrin, she introduced an activist.

Kinda like when Democrats get elected.
The promises and rhetoric are aplenty.
Supporters are in a fever pitch.
Then come the actual results.
